Support Special Events

Abbott House special events support our vision of building bridges to promising futures.  Our children, adolescents and adults critically depend on our partnership.  Without you and others like you, we simply could not begin to make a meaningful difference in their lives. 

There are a variety of ways to get involved, and we invite you to learn more and get in touch at

Spring Open House

Abbott House will open its historic doors for a Spring Open House on Tuesday, March 27th, from 6:30 -8:30pm.  Guests will receive tours of the building, get a rare glimpse of our programs in action and learn about volunteer opportunities.  Staff will be on hand to answer questions about the multiple programs available for children, families and adults with developmental disabilities.  Adults from our Day Habilitation Program will be holding a bake sale with proceeds benefiting the new Irvington Elementary School playground. Lite refreshments will served.

Annual Holiday Gift Drive

 Abbott House’s annual gift drive helps brighten the holiday for hundreds of children and adolescents in foster care, as well as developmentally disabled adults without families.  New items are collected year-round through corporate and community drives.  Suggested items include gift cards for adolescents, art and crafts supplies and kits, sports equipment, board games, electronics, makeup, jewelry, nail polish, and interactive games. Gifts are distributed in late December.

Dave Wade Memorial Golf Outing

Dave Wade had a big, warm heart.  His sense of humor, love, and loyalty to family and friends is why he holds a special place in everyone’s heart.  Dave helped start, and was the greatest cheerleader for the annual Abbott House Golf Outing because of his passion and commitment to improving the lives of children, families, and developmentally disabled adults. This annual outing held each year in May is a full day of golf, contests, dinner and cocktails.

Join us for the 2018 Dave Wade Memorial Golf Outing!
